Which somewhat explains why this group reminds me of a bunch of decapitated

Would it be correct to interpret your last sentence as:

	  We don't what the underlying cause of the growth in prefixes
          is (new allocations, old allocations, ISP's not aggregating).

With other words, we don't even know if the I-D in question is fixing the 
right problem.
